How Twitter Reacted To The New 'Top Gear'
The new revamped Top Gear finally aired tonight on BBC2, following the massive campaign of criticism it received since first announcing the new cast.
Was it a flop? Was it a success? I'm no TV critic, but people on Twitter are - so I'm gonna go by what they're pitching in.
Here's what the reaction was.
The twitter #TopGear feed is more entertaining than the show.- Pete Whitfield (@pwhitfield) May 29, 2016
Would rather watch Gordon Ramsay presenting this quite frankly #topgear- Beckie Ford (@_becktoria) May 29, 2016
I'm enjoying #TopGear. It's going to take a few months to bed in, but it's jolly- Greg Jenner (@greg_jenner) May 29, 2016
I am enjoying #TopGear. This is my opinion. Its basically STILL A SHOW ABOUT CARS DOING THINGS.- TechnicallyRon (@TechnicallyRon) May 29, 2016
Steve Coogan *as* Alan Partridge would have been better than Evans. Alan Partridge and Matt LeBlanc. Perfect combo. #TopGear- Lisa (@biscuitahoy) May 29, 2016

Is it possible to axe a TV show half way through the first episode? #TopGear. We could watch something else for the next 30 minutes.- Philip Walmsley (@M2Phil) May 29, 2016
#TopGear has been on for 20 minutes. My child has not stopped crying yet. This is probably coincidence, or it could be because it's dreadful- Benjamin Field (@Benjamin_field) May 29, 2016
In short, people mostly aren't happy. Search #TopGear and see a whole froth of others.
